Fares Reduced by 10% for May Travel

As we promised in our Managing Director’s Message to Riders earlier this month, the Capitol Corridor is offering a temporary 10% fare reduction on all tickets – One-way/Round-trip, 10-Ride, and Monthly – for travel in May 2018. This is to compensate riders for the severe delays over the past several months and say thank you for your continued support.

Stories from Our Riders

Every Ride Creative

Since the launch of the Every Ride Has a Story contest in March, riders have been sharing their unique, funny, and inspiring travel experiences with us – like Emy who traveled with her husband to San Jose for their 25th anniversary, and Hector, who takes the Capitol Corridor regularly during football season to cheer on the silver and black. If you haven’t had a chance to see the stories yet, they are on the website. We love reading them and think you will too. Browse through the stories page for great anecdotes and maybe even some travel ideas for your next trip! And, if you haven’t yet shared your story with us, please do! You have until June 1 to enter for a chance to win a fantastic San Francisco Bay Getaway prize.

Connect with Nature on the Capitol Corridor

Earth Day is this Sunday! Have any plans to get outside? If you’re still deciding what to do, read our latest blog post for beautiful and local nature preserves that you can enjoy on Sunday, or any day! The best part is they are all located a short walk from Capitol Corridor train stations, allowing you to travel sustainably while you enjoy the natural beauty of our own communities.
